Is Your Student a Good Candidate for 100% Online Learning?

If funded through the Texas Legislature, the Clear Creek Independent School District will open a full-time virtual school in the 2021-2022 school year for students Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. Clear Connections Virtual School is an extension of the remote learning program in place this school year in response to COVID-19.

“We are pleased to offer this unique learning environment for students who truly thrive in an online learning environment,” said Eric Williams, CCISD Superintendent of Schools. “We are looking beyond COVID-19 and identifying the successful attributes of an online education. Clear Connections Virtual School will be a destination for families who love Clear Creek ISD but also enjoy the flexibility an online platform offers.”

Some of those successful attributes include Clear Creek ISD curriculum delivered by CCISD teachers in synchronous and supported in asynchronous learning environments, enriched self-paced electives for high school students, virtual clubs, and the ability to join in person extracurricular activities before and after school on the student’s zoned campus. For the school to be successful, families are asked to make a year-long commitment.

Clear Connections Virtual School also includes a magnet program at the elementary level. Students in grades 6-12 who choose Clear Connections will be required to withdraw from their current campus and enroll in the virtual school which will be a stand-alone campus similar to Clear Horizons Early College High School and Clear View High School. Clear Connections Virtual School will have its own class rank system and graduation.

At the elementary level, students will be virtually connected to an elementary school as is the STEM Magnet at Ed White Elementary and the Dual Language Program at McWhirter Elementary.

Applications for next school year are available now. The deadline to apply will be at 12 p.m. on Friday, April 9, 2021. Enrollment confirmation in Clear Connections Virtual School will not occur until the Texas Legislature adopts specific legislation to fund remote learning for the 2021-2022 school year. In the event legislation is not adopted and funded, Clear Creek ISD will not be able to open Clear Connections Virtual School and applicants will be notified.
